Backing up volume data

You can replicate and protect volume data in a primary system using SnapVault.


  1. From the secondary system, enter the following command:snapvault start -S prim_system:/vol/volume_name /vol/volume_name/qtree_name

    -S prim_system:/vol/volume_name specifies the volume on the primary system whose data you want to backup.

    /vol/volume_name/qtree_name specifies the qtree in the secondary system where you want to store this data.
    Note: The qtree that is specified for /vol/volume_name/qtree_name must not exist on the secondary system before you run the snapvault start command.
    systemB> snapvault start -S systemA:/vol/vol1 /vol/vol4/vol1_copy

    SnapVault transfers the data in vol1 on primary systemA to the qtree called vol1_copy in vol4 on systemB (the secondary system). It also configures the qtree for future updates.
